Easy Flower Pot Herbal Beer Bread

Flower pot herbal beer bread. We used to sell these at the herb shop as a gift kit, but you can easily make them yourself. All you need is a terracotta pot and ingredients for the bread.

Flower Pot Herbal Beer Bread

What a fun gift this would be. A flower pot with beer bread mix inside. Just add herbs, beer and melted buter.

I’m using a quick beer bread recipe, because it is super easy and you can add any herbs that you like. Since I’m not a huge bread baker I can only guess that this would work with a number of bread recipes.

Make a quick herbal bread in this clay pot. Cover the hole with foil.

If your pot has a hole in the bottom, cover it with a piece of foil. My husband really like the moistness of this beer bread, which has a muffin or biscuit like texture. Even though it doesn’t have any preservatives, it held up in a plastic bag for several days. Maybe it’s the beer?

Make sure you grease the pot with butter, so that the dough does not stick to the pot.

Give this as a gift by combining the flour and spices together in a bag, and place it in a clean pot, tied up with a bow. Add a tag telling the recipient to add beer, butter and fresh herbs or dried herbs in the flour mix.

Remember when swapping dried herbs with fresh you should increase the amount by three. For example, 1 T of dried basil would equal 3 T of fresh.

  1. This is great! I may try it with a few of my own bread recipes. It would make a wonderful gift!

    • Thanks Karen!
      I think so and it’s easy to make. I’m not a big baker but have to wonder how a more traditional bread recipe would come out.
      Thanks for stopping by,
